Tia Mowry

Sues Over Tweet Deal Gone Wrong

#Wheresmy108k #SeeUinCourt

Thanks to "Sister Sister" star Tia Mowry we now know why some celebs can't stop Tweeting -- because they can make a bloody fortune doing it ... but Mowry claims she got bamboozled out of her earnings by a double-dealing agent.

Tia filed a lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- which shows she made deals to send sponsored Tweets for certain companies ... deals that were supposed to have paid her more than $108,000!!

But according to the suit ... the agent she hired to handle her Twitter deals soaked her for far more than the 10% commission to which he was entitled -- and instead took more than HALF of the Tweet deal cash.

Mowry says she's been cheated out of nearly $60K. She's suing for that, plus another $120K in punitive damages.

So...she was set to make a ton of money promoting lies about stuff she certainly does not care enough to endorse for free, and is now mad because some other liar beat her to some of the loot?

C-List? She's been working consistently since her "Sister, Sister" days and has been the main point in THREE successful, record breaking shows in the last couple of years. Just because you haven't seen her stumbling out of clubs or going to rehab 100 times a year, doesn't mean she's C-List. Get your **** together tmz.

This is exactly why you don't trust anything Hollyweird people have to say. Everything is calculated and about money!

So let me get this straight. TMZ spends all their time kissing the Kardashians fake a$$es, but are quick to take a dig at a talented actress by calling her c-list? Gross.

We need laws that say if your tweets are actually ads you have to disclose it.

Being a bonified actress coming up through the ranks makes you a C-list-er (Tia M), but being a d$&k sucker to A-listers (Kim K) makes you an A-lister! Thank God my life is not Hollywood!

Yo TMZ,

60+120 = 180 not 108.

I'm sure she thinks she deserves the cash, even though she has probably never used any of the products she is frontin.
